Home Quality Mark (HQM) is a customer-focused, third-party assessment and certification scheme for new homes.
HQM awards projects with a simple star rating for the standard of a home’s design, construction and sustainability.
The assessment is focused on the needs and expectations of the people living in the home. Afterall, we spend around 50% of our time at home; therefore health and wellbeing is paramount to that.
HQM recognises where performance meets the best-practise standards that are often significantly above those required by regulation.
It builds on best practise in the housing sector, drawing together a range of quality and performance standards and combining this with the latest scientific research.
It helps builders to demonstrate the high quality of their homes and to differentiate them in the marketplace. At the same time, it gives householders the confidence that the new homes they are choosing to buy or rent are well designed and built, and cost effective to run.
HQM certified homes achieve high standards of quality, running costs, health and wellbeing, and environmental impact.
We have experienced and qualified HQM assessors who can provide a complete package of sustainability services.
